Calling All Keiki Culinary Superstars!
The Hawaii Gas Presents Localicious® Recipe Contest is a fun cooking competition for kids to show off their talents in the kitchen and inspire them to support local farmers and producers! All participants will be asked to submit an original recipe of a school lunch meal they would like to see in their school cafeteria. A culinary judge will review the recipes to select the top three (3) submissions from two grade categories: Grades 4-8 and 9-12.
The top three finalists in each grade category will be invited to prepare their dish LIVE in front of an audience, and present their dish for tasting and scoring by three judges at the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival’s Hawaii Gas Presents Localicious® Recipe Contest Cookoff event in Honolulu, Hawaii. Cash scholarships will be awarded for first, second and third place winners in grades 9-12 and cash gift cards will be awarded to first, second and third place winners in grades 4-8. Winners will be announced at the live Cookoff event on October 29, 2023 at Bishop Museum.
